Babbitt, Ellen C
Eighteen fables, with a T of C on ix. These stories are clearly written for children. Some of the stories have more potential than is realized in these somewhat simplified and moralized tellings. How the Turtle Saved His Own Life (10) may be the best of a lot that is largely new to me. The glory of this book lies in the deft silhouette-like illustrations, one or two for each story. Outstanding examples of these are on 22, 47, 76, and 86.
